Hip Hip Hooray - Color Throwdown #663

~

Happy Wednesday!  I'm hosting this week's Color Throwdown challenge and the colors I've chosen for us to play with are Orange, Brown, and Gray.

This is a pretty subdued color combo, but you can jazz it up by increasing the brightness of any of the colors.  I used some brighter orange tones in my card.

I used the Organic Elements stamp set from Ellen Hutson LLC and created a leaf by water coloring directly onto each stamp, and applying the stamp to the paper. Then I used my glass pen dipped in the gathered twigs color to outline the leaf parts and to add veining.

I water colored the background with a light gray and splattered all the colors onto the panel.  The sentiment from the It's All Good stamp set, also from Ellen Hutson LLC, was stamped in gathered twigs too.

Now it's your turn to play along.  Head on over to the CTD blog for all the details and links to all the luscious inspiration from the design team members!
